Graduate in critical condition 



Dan Callahan '14 

Sports Editor 

Charlie Parker, a 2010 LVC 
graduate and leader on the grid- 
iron, was listed in critical condi- 
tion as of press time Wednesday 
as a result of an auto accident that 
claimed the life of the driver and 
injured another passenger. 

Parker, 23, was a passenger in 
a Jeep Cherokee driven by Rich- 
ard Hake, 23, of Columbia when 
the vehicle ran through a stop 
sign and crashed into a Lancaster 
County home. Hake was killed in 
the crash, and 23-year-old Joseph 
Zeamer, another passenger, was 
listed in good condition. 

Caleb Fick, former quarter- 
back, teammate, and 2011 gradu- 
ate heard the news about Parker 
through Facebook. 

"When I first found out, every- 
one was writing on Facebook. I 



tried searching Google about the 
accident, and then I saw several 
posts on Facebook about the driv- 
er. After I read that, I knew it was 
him. A bunch of our teammates 
were concerned and started asking 
around to see if anyone knew any- 
thing/' said Fick. "He was some- 
thing else to see play football. If he 
wasn't making you miss with some 
sort of spin to get out of traffic, he 
was running people over." 

"Charlie will go down as one of 
the finest running backs in the his- 
tory of LVC football. His love and 
passion for the game was displayed 
in how he ran the ball and how he 
played the game/' said head foot- 
ball coach Jim Monos. "We are 
hoping he has a full recovery." 

Investigators told Lancaster 
Online that Hake was driving 
along Donnerville Road around 2 
a.m. Sunday and failed to stop at a

A black light UG dance, bon- 
fire, pep rally, powder puff, and 
a football game against FDU? 
LVC's Homecoming weekend 
must be here again! This year's 
theme of "Light Up Your Life" is 
going to be blasting into every as- 
pect of Oktoberfest 2011. 

Though the weekend's festivi- 
ties officially begin on Thursday, 
Oct. 13, there are many aspects of 
Homecoming that are already in 
full swing. With the election of 
Homecoming Court, ten lucky 
people will have the chance to be

sold over 400 Homecoming 
T-shirts to students last week. 



"You'll be the hit of any sleepover 
with these new glow-in-the-dark 
shirts!" said Erin Pruett, Student 
Government Representative. If 
you didn't get a chance to buy a 
t-shirt, the junior class will be 
selling them at the football game 
on Saturday. Shirt quantities are 
limited so make sure to arrive ear- 
ly to ensure you get one. 

Homecoming kickoff will be-

night. The game will feature the 
Senior and Sophomore classes 
battling the Junior and Fresh- 
men classes. Thursday will roll 
right into the weekend with "The 




Psychic Madman," Jim Karol, per- 
forming in Arnold Sports Center 
at 9:00 on Friday night. 

Directly following this perfor- 
mance, students will travel to the 
football stadium for the annual 
pep rally featuring the "Pride of

Facebook changes receive feedback, dislike 



Jocelyn Davis '15 

La Vie Staff Writer 

Changes, Facebook has made 
them again. The ever popular social 
networking site used by a majority 
of college students is facing criticism 
from its users because of recent up- 
dates to the site. Angry posts such as, 
"fb for the last time these updates are 
not appreciated !" posted by Katie Yost 
'15, covered Facebook's newsfeed 
immediately following the changes. 
Updates to the site include lists, news 
feed, ticker, privacy settings, and the 
subscribe feature. 

According to Facebook officials, 
"We're always working on building 
new features and improving existing 
ones." 

While these changes were put in 



place to increase enjoyment of the site, 
students around campus are not fond 
of the changes. "Honestly I don't like 
them at all. I never really cared about 
'top stories' just the most recent ones, 
and now Facebook found a way to 
make that even more overly compli- 
cated and irritating," explained Shawn 
Briggs'15. 

According to facebook, "News 
Feed will act more like your own per- 
sonal newspaper. You won't have to 
worry about missing important stuff. 
All your news will be in a single stream 
with the most interesting stories fea- 
tured at the top. If you haven't visited 
Facebook for a while, the first things 
you'll see are top photos and sta- 
tuses posted while you've been away. 
They're marked with an easy-to-spot 
blue corner." 



Perhaps the most annoying ad- 
dition to facebook is the Ticker, also 
referred to around campus as the 
"Creeper Wall,, located in the upper 
right hand corner of the screen. Ticker 
lets you see all your friends' activity in 
real-time. It shows you the same stuff 
you were already seeing on Facebook, 
but it brings your conversations to life 
by displaying updates instantaneously. 

"The changes make using Face- 
book so much more UNenjoyable at 
times," complained Brandon Gawel 
'15. While facebook officials believe 
it is necessary to continuously make 
updates to their site to keep their users 
interested and happy, it looks like they 
maybe getting the opposite effect.

Legality of same-sex marriage sparks controversy 



Nicki Shepski '15 

La Vie Staff Writer 

"When it comes to love, there is no 
difference between a man and a man 
loving each other or a woman and a 
woman loving each other, as opposed 
to a man and a woman loving each 
other/' says freshman Freedom Rings 
member Doug Waterman. "Love 
has no boundaries, and I believe we 
should be given the same rights as ev- 
erybody else." 

For centuries, the debate of wheth- 
er same-sex marriage is right or wrong 
has baffled humanity, and once again 
has stirred controversy in the U.S. 

"I think it has a lot to do with our 
foundations as a western civilization 
and the influence that biblical litera- 
ture plays in society," said Chaplain 
Paul Fullmer. "We have been [raised] 
in an ethic that says homosexuality is 
wrong." 

Dr. Marianne Goodfellow, profes- 
sor of Sociology, says there are two 
major groups or ways to interpret reli- 
gious scriptures - literal and interpre- 
tive. "People take phrases in the Old 
Testament about sodomy and focus 
solely on that versus how man created 
scripture and the interpretation of 
that scripture." 

According to Chaplain Fullmer, 
the term 'homosexuality' was a tech- 
nical term developed in the 19th cen- 
tury, and when society deciphers the 
Greek words behind it in the Bible, 
it sometimes refers to pederasty, the 
relationship between an adult and an 
adolescent boy, or situations where 
there is an economic or social dispar- 
ity where someone is taking advan- 
tage of another person. "Maybe that 
is the issue that the Bible is seeking to 
address and not the sex act [of homo- 
sexuality] itself" 

In fact, the very core of this issue is 
religion and religious views and votes. 
"Religion tends to have a hold on the 
word marriage and what they call the 
institution of marriage," says senior 
Freedom Rings member Christa 
Levko. "That has a lot of people stuck 
in a way of thinking where a marriage 
is this religious concept of a union 
between a man and a woman. But, as 
we come to realize the benefits of mar- 
riage, the civil union of marriage, the 
federal benefits of being partners, the 
federal acknowledgement of being 
partners and how that's different from 
being married under the eyes of God, 
they have to be seen as two totally 
separate things." 

Marriage comes from a time 



where religion and state weren't sepa- 
rate; therefore the contract of mar- 
riage was both one of religious and le- 
gal purposes. Andrew Texter, a senior 
member of Freedom Rings observes, 
"What we're doing now is taking a 
word that has simultaneous religious 
and legal meaning and trying to pull 
it apart." 

On June 24, New York state law- 
makers signed the Marriage Equal- 
ity Act, which became effective one 
month later, legalizing gay marriage. 
New York is the sixth and largest state 
as of yet to allow same-sex marriage, 
preceded by Massachusetts in 2004, 
Connecticut in 2008, Iowa and Ver- 
mont in 2009, and New Hampshire in 
2010. New Mexico and Rhode Island 
both have pending legislation regard- 
ing the issue, while four states (New 
Jersey, Nevada, Oregon and Washing- 
ton) allow for civil unions. All other 
states, including Pennsylvania, ban 
same-sex marriage. 

"Technically, everyone has the 
same right to get married," says Texter. 
"What we need to look at as a coun- 
try is how to incorporate these beliefs 
into law so we can have equal oppor- 
tunities." 

Alex Philip, sophomore Campus 
Conservative, disagrees. "Every indi- 
vidual has the same rights. Marriage 
isn't a right. Freedom of speech, free- 
dom of religion - those are rights." 
Furthermore, he believes that the fed- 
eral government doesn't need to be in- 
volved with the institution of marriage 
in any way. "Marriage is a religious 
function, and there's no need to define 
it legally because people take advan- 
tage of the benefits like state progres- 
sive tax codes." 

Currently, Pennsylvania has an 
adopted provision of law modeled 
after the federal Defense of Marriage 
Act, specifically identifying marriage 
as a union between individuals of op- 
posite sex. Furthermore, according to 
Political Science professor Dr. Philip 
Benesch, legislation also states that 
Pennsylvania will not recognize an 
out of state same-sex marriage. There- 
fore, if a homosexual couple marries in 
New York and moves to Pennsylvania 
that marriage will be annulled. 

There is a ray of hope for gay 
Pennsylvanian couples, however. On 
September 20, 2011, the military's 
"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy ban- 
ning openly gay, lesbian, bisexual and 
transgender military service was of- 
ficially repealed. The Pentagon even 
began accepting openly homosexual 
military service applications hours 



before the policy's official repeal, how- 
ever, they were not reviewed until the 
next day. 

"It's a huge voice of reason," says 
Chaplain Fullmer. "It will raise the 
conversation again and will help peo- 
ple to rethink the issue. It will also pro- 
vide a source of inspiration for people 
to say 'Well, maybe I don't need to be 
so unreasonable about this issue.'" 

Freedom Rings Christa Levko 
agrees. "They're two different issues, 
but repealing 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' is 
just a step towards a new way of think- 
ing that everyone is equal." 

"Pennsylvania tends to be a state 
that's always been very proud of its 
military history," says Texter. "Soon, 
we're going to have openly gay soldiers 
return home from Iraq and from wars 
overseas and I think seeing those sol- 
diers will have a huge impact on how 
Pennsylvanians and people around 
the country think about allowing gays 
to marry." 

Although this impact appears 
very probable, it will, however not be 
instantaneous. Gay marriage equal- 
ity is in the hands of individual states, 
and not the federal government. After 
the Vietnam War, African-Americans 
came back to their home country to 
find that they were actually treated 
better overseas in the military while 
fighting on the front lines than they 
were in their home country. They in- 
creased their level of activism towards 
civil rights and eventually, laws were 
changed to adopt their equality. Ac- 
cording to Professor Goodfellow, this 
same situation will potentially follow 
"Don't Ask, Don't Tells" repeal. "If the 
gay community comes back and says 
'Wait, I had the same rights as every- 
body else overseas and now I don't 
have those same rights in my home 
country' and they increase their activ- 
ism toward getting state laws changed, 
a spill-over effect is possible." 

Additionally, when people collab- 
orate as equal partners, they develop 
less prejudice towards that partner. 
Therefore, if more men and women 
begin coming out in the military and 
in the work place, more people will 
get to know them and a ripple effect 
of understanding and acceptance will 
take place. 

"There's likelihood that it [the re- 
peal] will make this a less contentious 
issue in the long run. In the short run, 
there may be some push back," says 
Dr. Benesch. "You may find a con- 
servative mobilization as you had in 
2004, and this could well lead to some 
initiatives in some states to further for- 



tify the move against such rights." 

"I would consider it to be a vic- 
tory for the gay community, but I 
wouldn't expect it to be significant in 
the change. The original purpose of 
'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' was to prevent 
discrimination and to also prevent too 
much promiscuous behavior in the 
military," observes Philip. 

The Defense of Marriage Act del- 
egates the responsibility of allowing 
same-sex marriage to state govern- 
ments rather than the federal govern- 
ment and it has remained the law since 
1996. If this law was repealed at the 
federal level, than Pennsylvania would 
have to recognize out-of-state same- 
sex marriages even if the actual perfor- 
mance of homosexual marriage wasn't 
yet allowed. "I wouldn't have a prob- 
lem if Pennsylvania allowed same-sex 
marriage, but I think it [the Defense of 
Marriage Act] is a good thing because 
it makes it a state decision," said Philip. 

Pennsylvania aside, Chaplain 
Fullmer says "the [LVC] commu- 
nity understands that homosexual- 
ity today is something very different, 
where you have two people who love 
each other and are committed to each 
other." LVC's employment policies 
reflect that tolerance. "LVC's policies 
support couples of different stripes 
and colors. Your gay or lesbian partner 
can receive benefits from the college if 
you work at the college." 

"Everyone here is individual," says 
Texter. "Last year I was involved with 
Counsel of Christians Organization 
and on other campuses I don't know 
if I could've done both groups, but 
because everyone is so individual, I 
wasn t known as 'That kid from Free- 
dom Rings who shows up to meet- 
ings' I was known as Andrew.'" 

To learn more about the issue, talk 
to a Freedom Rings member, some- 
one who is openly gay or an openly 
gay ally. There are several professors, 
administrators and students who 
wouldn't mind discussing the issue 
and LVC hosts classes on AIDS, gen- 
der expression and minority expres- 
sion. Freedom Rings meets at 9 p.m. 
on Tuesday nights in the Fellowship 
Lounge. 

"It's not an issue just for people that 
identify as LGBT. It's an issue that ev- 
eryone should realize is important be- 
cause we're not just looking anymore 
at women's rights or gay and lesbian 
rights - it's human rights and rights 
that should be awarded to everyone," 
says Levko.

The freedom of 
reading 

Brittney Falter ' 1 5 

La Vie Staff Writer 

Banned Books week is a week 
where various bookstores and li- 
braries throughout the nation dem- 
onstrate the effects of censorship 
by displaying books that have been 
challenged over the years. 

This event takes place annually 
during the last week of September. 
This year, Banned Books Week was 
held from Sept. 24 through Oct. 
1. Banned Books Week is the only 
national celebration of the freedom 
to read, and it celebrates the impor- 
tance of the First Amendment. 

Banned Books Week shows 
how free, open access to facts and 
information in books can be ben- 
eficial and how censoring books 
can be harmful. BBW displays ac- 
tual and tried banned books. The 
purpose of Banned Books Week 
is to provide intellectual freedom. 
Intellectual freedom is simply the 
freedom to access information and 
express ideas, even if those ideas 
maybe unorthodox or unpopular. 

During this week, the impor- 
tance of making unpopular points 
of view accessible for anyone who 
wishes to read them is stressed. 
All of the books featured during 
this week have been challenged or 
banned in the past. Thanks to the 
efforts of librarians, booksellers and 
teachers, the majority of challenged 
books ended up not being banned. 
In our society, we have the right to 
the First Amendment and to write 
and read what we want. When 
books are banned and information 
is taken away, our ability to think 
freely is also taken away. 

Many books have been chal- 
lenged over the years. Some of these 
books include: The Great Gatsby 
by F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Catcher 
in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, To Kill 
a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, 
The Color Purple by Alice Walker, 
Ulysses by James Joyce, 1984 and 
Animal Farm by George Orwell, 
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by 
Stephen Chbosky The Adventures 
of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, 
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, 
and many more. These books have 
been banned due to their "sexually 
explicit" and "offensive" content 
and for being "unsuited to any age 
group" as reported to the Office of 
Intellectual Freedom.

In the early morning hours of 
Thursday September 8, the base- 
ment of my wife s and my home 
on West High St. in Annville, our 
shed full of equipment and boxes 
of my books, and our entire one- 
floor, un-attached apartment were 
badly flooded by tropical storm 
Lee. On Saturday, with the help of 
our sons, neighbors, and friends, 
we were able to begin cleaning out 
and drying out the basement and 
shed; but that still left the totally 
ruined apartment and its chaotic 
jumble of contents to deal with. 
How to even begin? 

The answer was to call three 
people at the college: Rev. Paul 
Fulmer, basketball coach Brad 
McAlester, and football coach Jim 
Monos. Within hours after each 
call, each of those men had con- 
tacted students who had volun- 
teered to help local flood victims 
like us, and by Monday afternoon 
at least twenty such students had 
shown up at our house, dawned 
masks and gloves, and moved ev- 



ery muddy, stinking, water-logged 
item — including rug and lino- 
leum — out of that apartment and 
into the street so that the next day 
they could be thrown into huge 
dumpsters along with all of our 
neighbors' sudden junk. Many 
of those students then went on to 
help our neighbors who had suf- 
fered damage much worse than 
ours. 

After teaching at Lebanon 
Valley College for almost forty- 
two years, I thought that I had 
discovered every possible reason 
to like and respect my students; 
but last month they gave me yet 
another reason, maybe the best 
one ever. All I can do is to tell you 
students that my wife and I thank 
you from the bottom of our hearts. 
Q: Why have I taught here so 
long? A: With students like ours, 
why would I teach anywhere else?

Do you need a listening ear? 



This year, Counseling Services 
has started a new program this 
year called 50/50 Peer Helper. 
You maybe wondering, "What is 
a Peer Helper?" Peer Helpers are 
fellow students who have been 
trained by the professional coun- 
seling staff on campus to listen 
open-mindedly and assist other 
students in sorting out their is- 
sues and deciding on a course of 
action. They won t tell you what 
to do; they will help you decide 
what you want to do. Peer Help- 



ing is private and is available 
during the day as well as on the 
evenings and weekends. For stu- 
dents who feel more comfortable 
talking to a fellow student, a Peer 
Helper is a great source of help. 
The Peer Helpers on campus are 
Cameron Venable and Sarah Mu- 
noz. Please contact either of them 
by calling extension 5050. They

Each semester, the Suzanne 
H. Arnold Art Gallery takes on a 
new intern to learn about museum 
practices and gain the experience 
valued by art galleries and gradu- 
ate schools. Students work under 
the direction of Dr. Barbara Mc- 
Nulty, director of the gallery, and 
Crista Detweiler, assistant to the 
director and registrar. A six credit 
course and eighteen hours a week 
devoted to the internship gives 
interns a more involved, more in 
depth experience. This semes- 
ters intern is John Heenan '13. 

"Being involved 
with the Suzanne 
H. Arnold Gallery 
this semester as the 
student intern has 
been an incredible 
experience. Horror 
stories of "bad" in- 
ternships from col- 
leagues who have 
only had the mean- 
ingless jobs of paint- 
ing walls, sweeping 
floors, and coffee 
runs have always 
been in the back of 
my mind while ap- 
plying for various 
internships," stated 
Heenan. "I feel that this opportu- 
nity at the Suzanne H. Arnold Gal- 
lery has surpassed all expectations 
and has given me exceptional expe- 
rience that exceeds most other mu- 
seum studies internship programs." 

For the time being, Heenan has 
been working on cataloguing of 
the gallery s permanent collec- 
tion onto a database, which is over 
50% complete. Last year under the 
supervision of Dr. Michael Fry, a 
group of LVC computer science 
majors developed the database. 

In addition, Heenan has also been 
preparing for the upcoming exhibit 
at the gallery, "Modern Prints 1900 
- 1950: Selections from the Syra- 
cuse University Art Collection." 

"The modernist print show has 
become [my] main project. So far, 
researching the works that will be 
displayed in the exhibit has taken 
up a large portion of my time here," 
Heenan said of his responsibilities 
at the gallery. "To accurately pres- 
ent information on each of the 
numerous artists that make up the 
show, a large amount of research 



must be done on the artists, as well 
as the social and historical con- 
text surrounding the time period." 

This exhibit is to open on Fri- 
day, Nov. 4. The exhibit itself is 
consisted of artwork spanning the 
early modern period and high- 
lights "a time of innovation in a 
rapidly changing world." Distin- 
guished European artists such as 
Picasso, Kandinksy, and Miro, 
as well as American artwork by 
Marin, Daves, Avery, and others 
will be showcased at the exhibit. 

Heenan suggested that students 
from the LVC jazz ensemble play 
"Django Reinhart" type jazz at the 
opening. This type of jazz, featur-

STUDENT INTERN John Heenan '13 is the current student intern at Su- 
zanne H. Arnold Art Gallery. Heenan is currently preparing for the upcoming 
exhibition entitled "Modern Prints 1900-1950: Selections from the Syracuse 
University Art Collection. 



ing guitar was also very popular 
in French gypsy culture, as well as 
during the 1920s and 1930s, which 
is the time frame for the early mod- 
ern era in art. Heenan has also been 
researching the prints in the exhi- 
bition to prepare exhibit labels for 
the upcoming show. The highlight 
of his work will be installing the ex- 
hibit, which includes hanging art- 
work, lighting, and placing labels 
for the opening of the exhibition. 
He has also been doing research 
on the prints in the exhibition in 
order to prepare exhibit labels for 
the show. The gallery welcomes all 
students to this opening for a fun 
evening from 5 - 7 pm on Nov. 4. 

"I have also been involved with 
organizing the musical accompani- 
ment for the opening reception." 
Heenan said about his idea for 
the opening reception. "We have 
devised that the most fitting and 
most relevant music that we could 
showcase during the exhibit is 
1920-1930 s jazz music, which will 
be performed by members of the 
LVC jazz ensemble. Intheupcom- k. trout 



ing weeks, I plan on concentrat- 
ing on finalizing labels, organizing 
an order as to how the show will 
be hung, and promoting the ex- 
hibit and the opening reception." 

When asked what its been like 
having Heenan as an intern, Dr. 
McNulty replied, "It has been 
an incredible experience hav- 
ing John Heenan as an intern for 
the Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gal- 
lery this past semester. He has 
brought so much talent, energy 
and enthusiasm to his work here." 

Junior John Heenan has most 
certainly put a lot of effort and 
time into his internship. On a final 
note, he says, "By applying myself 
in this position, I 
have been able to 
asses my strengths 
and weaknesses 
in the field and 
be fully prepared 
for the responsi- 
bilities museum 
work entails. As 
far as what I have 
learned in the 
past month while 
taking part in this 
internship, I can 
honestly say that 
this experience 
will be a driving 
force in my search 
for a career or 
continuing my studies. The ex- 
periential knowledge gained will 
translate perfectly to the interview 
process and applications for gradu- 
ate schools and a future career path." 

Many things are going on at the 
Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery. 
McNulty encourages LVC students 
and the community to come and 
experience what they have to offer. 
Until Oct. 23, "Money, Art and the 
Art of Money" exhibition will be 
open. A few days after the opening 
of the upcoming art exhibit, "Mod- 
ern Prints 1900 - 1950: Selections 
from the Syracuse University Art 
Collection," Dr. Gerald Silk, pro- 
fessor of modern and contempo- 
rary art, chair of the art history de- 
partment, Temple University, will 
present "Prints Matter: Themes 
and Variations in the Modernist 
Print." Thursday, Nov. 10, 5 p.m, 
Zimmerman Recital Hall. The art 
gallery invites all students and the 
community to attend.

A&E Editor 

One of my finest memories 
from my gaming youth was from 
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. 
I'd get on the family computer, 
double click the icon, and wait. The 
unmistakable dragon logo formed 
on the screen, accompanied by the 
far away pounding of drums that 
made up the beginning of the 
game s theme music. I'd sit there 
at the menu, just listening to the 
song. It was part of a soundtrack 
composed by Jeremy Soule, and 
it remains to this day my favorite 
game music of all time. I can't help 
but be transported back to the days 
when Morrowind was the latest 
Elder Scrolls game (now the fifth 
title in the series, Skyrim, is close to 
release). The soundtrack added so 
much atmosphere to the game, and 
it certainly wouldn't have gotten 
the accolades it had without such a 
moving soundtrack to accompany 
it. In fact, the music itself was nomi- 



nated for the Outstanding Achieve- most games do not feature or stress 
ment in Original Music Compo- music much at all. Games like 
sition award of the Academy of Morrowind, Oblivion, and the 

upcoming Skyrim 
are rare, partly be- 
cause a gigantic, 
epic soundtrack 
is integral to the 
types of game that 
they are, and be- 
cause they have a 
widely recogniz- 
able theme song 
that is consistent 
with each release. 
But when was the 
last time you heard 
anyone talk about 
how awesome the 
Interactive Arts & Science. Soule music was in any Modern Warfare 
also composed the soundtracks to game? Or Halo? Or practically any 
many other games, including Dun- other triple-A title that has come 
geon Siege and Neverwinter Nights out in the past decade. Rather, these 
in 2002, and the Elder Scrolls IV: games stress sound design over 
Oblivion, which won numerous music; the sounds of gunfire and 
awards for the soundtrack as well. explosions are the focal point, 
Really, music is an often over- not composed music. And on 
looked aspect in games. Indeed, that ground these games have suc- 



ceeded, because the sound effects 
are quite marvelous indeed. 

However, a good game 



The ei der Scrolls 111 

MORROWJN]} 



O rfginal jSoundt rac k 



Bethesda Softworks 




Rockstar Entertainment 

soundtrack can really hit a game out 
of the park in terms of atmosphere, 
when done well. Another recent ex- 
ample would be L.A Noire. Rock- 
star games has always relied on 
soundtracks to set the mood and 
time period for their games, and 
L.A. Noire is a perfect example with 
an original score score by Simon 



and Andrew Hale, along with some 
original music from the 1940 s. The 
game takes place in Hollywood in 
the 1950s, where the jazz scene was 
exploding. The soundtrack perfectly 
accompanies this setting, and makes 
a world of difference in making the 
setting concrete. The authentic mu- 
sic from this time period was just as 
important as any other aspect of the 
game. L.A. Noire really succeeded 
at placing the player into this time 
period, and integral to this was the 
game s wonderful music. 

In the end, music in video games 
is just as important as sound de- 
sign, graphics, gameplay or any 
other aspect. While an extensive 
soundtrack may not suit most 
games, those that do feature well done 
music are to be commended. Next 
time you boot up one of your games, 
new or old, stop and take a minute 
to immerse yourself in its music. 
There's a good chance you'll find 
something to love.

Renowned baroque orchestra to play at LVC 



Nikki Wilhelm' 1 5 

La Vie Staff Writer 

Coming to LVC through sup- 
port from the Burgner Endow- 
ment for Chamber Music, Tem- 
pesta di Mare is a world-renowned 
baroque orchestra based in Phila- 
delphia. Named after Vivaldi's 
concerto, the orchestra is known 
for its ability to perform power- 
ful and dramatic pieces composed 
during the baroque era. True 
to the baroque style, Tempesta 
die Mare rehearses and performs 
without a conductor. Tempesta 
is led by artistic directors Gwyn 
Roberts and Richard Stone and 
the concertmaster Emlyn Ngai. 
Tempesta's selection of pieces 
ranges from a full orchestra to 
chamber music. Tempesta di 
Mare has traveled all around the 
world and gained international ac- 
claim in large cities like Paris and 
Prague. 

The Broad Street Review de- 
scribes Tempesta's orchestral abili- 
ties as "a vision of paradise." 




The group has released sev- 
eral CDs and is the only Ameri- 
can baroque music group to sign 
with the prestigious British label 
Chandos. Every year Tempesta 
records a new album with Chan- 



dos, which is released worldwide. 
The recording project is sponsored 
by The Pew Center for Arts & 
Heritage through the Philadel- 
phia Music Project and by The 
William Penn Foundation.

This Thursday, Oct. 6, three 
members of the ensemble will 
present a lecture-recital on "How 
to Speak Baroque" in Lutz Hall. 

As a celebration of Tempesta's 
tenth anniversary, they will per- 



form at LVC in Lutz Hall in the 
Blair Music Center on Oct. 14 at 
7:30 p.m. The concert is free and 
open to the public. Earlier in the 
day, from 2-4, the group's prin- 
cipal players are offering a free 
master class on campus to any 
students who are interested. Mu- 
sicians of any level are invited to 
attend this rare opportunity. For 
more information, students are en- 
couraged to contact Dr. Dietrich. 

The season does not officially 
begin until Oct. 15, so LVC is privy 
to an exciting first look at the con- 
cert. Tempesta's concert program, 
Tempesta Turns Ten, introduces 
their season this year. The orches- 
tra will perform Vivaldi's Concer- 
to for Four Violins, in honor of its 
300th anniversary of publication, 
a birthday symphony by William 
Boyce, a ballet suite from Jean- 
Philippe Rameau's Celebrations of 
Polyhymnia, and an overture byjo- 
hann Friedrich Fasch.

Facebook changes stir opinion on Social Network 



Russell Calkins '14 

La Vie Staff Writer 

There is a world where people 
share too much with too many 
people and have more friends than 
they can possibly name — or even 
remember. In this world; speakers 
are numb to the power of words 
and appreciation is shown with a 
sterile wave of the hand. What is 
said to one is said to all; mostly for 
the benefit of the speaker. The cre- 
ation of this world is documented 
in a movie that should have been 
titled The Unsocial Network. 

It is fitting that the socially-inept 
Mark Zuckerberg — portrayed 
by Jesse Eisenberg — authored 
this world s book of Genesis. A 
600-horsepower intellectual engine 
drives Mark Zuckerberg, and it runs 
on pure rejection. Throughout the 
film, Zuckerberg is unrelentingly 
awkward and abrasive in social 
situations. Many of his social flaws 
have parallels in the unique world 
of Facebook. 

Facebook is a site on which us- 
ers can share details from the most 
shallow to the most intimate, and all 
while under the impression they are 
doing something social. The hier- 



archy of a Facebook status — big sta- 
tus box at the top (the T'), smaller 
comment boxes (the "others") 
beneath the big box — makes the 
user feel important. When you're 
reading my status, you're reading 
my status. This is in contrast to real 
life discussions. Face-to-face con- 
versation is a fluid, organic process, 
and not a rigid tower of thoughts. 

Facebook is a platform whereup- 
on Zuckerb erg's mistake can easily 
be repeated by anyone feeling a lit- 
tle upset with someone they know. 
Venting feels good, and Facebook 
feels similar to a personal journal. 
The filter of physically being in 
social company is removed and the 
user may lower their internal cen- 
sor. Once the angry thought has 
been shared, other broken-hearted 
users can share sympathy through 
one click of the "Like" button. 

Text does not always convey the 
author's intended message, and in- 
teractions on Facebook are subject 
to missed meaning. Something 
serious can be read as sarcastic or 
vice versa. If someone's Facebook 
friends know them for light-hearted 
joke statuses, a change in tone could 
be missed. A light ribbing, without 
the interpersonal indicators of body 



language and tone, could be taken 
as a serious insult. 

Mark Zuckerberg's product has 
the same effect on social interac- 
tion that Sean Parker's product — 
Napster — had on recorded music. 
Zuckerberg's idol reduced the value 
of recorded music in the same way 
that Facebook cheapens social 
interaction. Music via Napster 
became instantly accessible and 
free — even if it was technically theft 
to download music. Like music 
on Napster, social interaction via 
Facebook is always available if a 
computer or cell phone is near; we 
are always attached to and instantly 
interacting with each other. The 
only thing users steal on Facebook, 
however, is the value of their own 
social exchanges. 

As a so-called social network, 
Facebook sets a terrible example 
for healthy social interaction. The 
movie should certainly be titled The 
Unsocial Network, and Facebook 
should never be called social media. 
It may be appropriate, however, to 
call it social mass media, in that it 
waters down the act of socializing 
much like mass media waters down 
many of its messages.

Commuters: are they part of campus life? 



Susanna Chehata '14 

La Vie Staff Writer 

Commuters do not have the 
typical college experience; they do 
not live in a dorm, have a room- 
mate, nor live off the college's food 
for months at a time. However, 
does this make them less of a part of 
the LVC community? 

First, we should understand who 
qualifies as a "commuter." A commut- 
er is a student who lives off campus 
with a parent or guardian and travels 
to LVC for classes. Of the whole 
student body, 25 percent are com- 
muters, which is a great percentage. 

But returning to our question, 
are commuters a part of the LVC 
community? Recently, a change 
came about in student government. 
Prior to this year, there were only 
two commuter representatives on 
student government. Depending on 
which classes they were in, some- 
times a class would have a commut- 
er rep, and sometimes it wouldn't. 
However, student government re- 
cently voted to have four commuter 
reps, one from each class, who will 
work with the fellow officers from 



that class to plan events. 

Not only is there now a greater 
commuter representation in 
student government, but in the 
past few years, there has been an 
increase in commuter involvement 
in other campus activities. During 
orientation weekend, freshmen are 
invited to see all the available activi- 
ties on campus. Also, all students, 
commuters and residents alike, 
are invited to the activities fair, in 
which many clubs set up tables to 
inform students about themselves. 

Therefore, the opportunity to 
be involved on campus is open 
to all commuters, and the degree 
of involvement depends on the 
student. Some choose to be less 
involved because of jobs, family, 
and other commitments. Another 
difficulty that commuters face in 
attending meetings and practices 
is the distance; for those who live 
further away from campus, driving 
back here for late night meetings 
can sometimes be inconvenient. 
But overall in the past few years, 
according Jen Evans, the director of 
student affairs and the commuter 
liaison, there has been a rise in com- 



muter involvement in various clubs, 
sports teams, music groups, etc. 

Another resource that has 
made LVC commuters able stay on 
campus is the commuter lounge. 
Located in the basement of Mund, 
the lounge is a place for commut- 
ers to study, eat lunch, relax, bond 
with other commuters, and it is also 
a safe place for them to leave their 
belongings. Most importantly of 
these, however, is the bonding with 
other commuters. Just as residents 
tend to bond with their hall mates, 
commuters bond in their "hall," 
the lounge. Nevertheless, it is not 
uncommon to also see residents in 
the lounge spending time with their 
friends who are commuters. 

When Mund is finished, it 
will include a living room, with a 
fireplace, sofas, tables, and chairs, 
which will be available for both 
residents and commuters. A patio 
with outdoor seating will also be 
available for all students. These 
will hopefully bring commuters 
and residents together even more, 
because we are all LVC Dutchmen.

Elizabethtown took the lead 
early on but sophomore Heather 
Tran leveled on 31 minutes with 
an excellent unassisted goal to 
open the scoring for LVC.

Chloe Gunther '13 

La Vie Staff Writer 

Splitting their games at the 
second annual Mid Atlantic 
Conference crossover event, 
the Lebanon Valley volleyball 
team took on FDU-Florham and 
Eastern. 

Opening up with a quick win 
against FDU, the Dutchmen 
won three straight sets (25-11, 
25-17, 25-22). 

Sarah Godfrey '14 led the 
team with nine kills, followed 
by freshman Steph Klunk and 
senior Nicole Barra's eight. An- 
gela Kuperavage f 12 led defen- 
sively with 21 digs. The team 
tallied five blocks as a whole. 

The next match was against 
#5 Eastern, to whom the Dutch- 
men fell in three sets (15-25, 
17-25, 17-25). 



Senior Jamie Hawk led the 
team with nine kills and Ku- 
peravage led with 19 digs. The 
team added three blocks. 

LVC volleyball is now 11-5 
overall, and 2-1 in the Com- 
monwealth Conference. They 
currently sit at second in the 
conference, trailing Messiah 
College. 

The volleyball team will play 
at Neumann University in As- 
ton Friday night, and another

Bad weather not a problem for field hockey 

Novak becomes conference all-time leader in goals

Rain, wind and mud 
didn't stop the Lebanon 
Valley field hockey team 
from winning two straight 
games. 

After a brief thunder- 
storm shortened warm-ups, 
the Dutchmen took on the 
Gettysburg College Bullets. 

Less than five minutes 
into the game, Cate Cusack 
scored by redirecting a shot 
from Jess Cox. Just over ten 
minutes later, Jenni Walker 
notched her first of the 
season, assisted by Lauren 
Brumbach. 

Becoming the new all- 
time leader in goals in MAC 
play, Jocelyn Novak made the 
score 3-0. 

After the half, Gettysburg 
made the score 3-1. After stop- 
ping several of LVC s shots, in- 
cluding a penalty stroke attempt 
by Melissa Brosious, the Dutch- 
men finally added their fourth 
of the game from Caitlin Vasey. 




The Dutchmen held a 25-6 
advantage on shots and 16-4 on 
corners. Christine Poletti add- 
ed five saves in the win. 

Despite the rain and cold 
temperature, the Dutchmen 
were able to top Eastern Men- 
nonite on a nasty Saturday af- 
ternoon, 5-3. 



In the first ten minutes, LVC 
took the lead with goals from 
Novak, off of a pass from Vasey 
and Cox. Eastern Mennonite 
added a goal with four minutes 
left in the half, but Novak re- 
sponded and added her second 
of the game two seconds before 
halftime. 



Eastern Mennonite opened 
up the scoring in the second 
half, but LVC reacted as Novak 
added her third of the game and 
Cusack added one as well, both 
assisted by Vasey. 

In the final five minutes, 
Eastern Mennonite added their 
third, but the game was score-

less after that. 

In the win, Poletti had five 
saves for the Dutchmen. LVC 
also led 25-14 on shots, where 
Eastern Mennonite held an 8-4 
advantage on corners.

Men s soccer blanks Elizabethtown 

Combine with women's soccer to complete first ever sweep 



Alex Beard '14 

La Vie Staff Writer 

Freshman Kevin Doty rose 
to the occasion to score the lone 
goal in an historic victory for 
Lebanon Valley (7-4) over Eliza- 
bethtown (5-3) at In The Net 
Sports Complex on Saturday. 

After the women's team had 
sealed a convincing 3-1 over the 
Blue Jays earlier in the day, the 
men went for the first sweet of 
Elizabethtown soccer in school 
history. 



Doty picked the perfect game 
to net his third goal of the cam- 
paign as he drilled a shot just five 
minutes after the start of the sec- 
ond half. 

In a physical game that fea- 
tured 17 total fouls (Elizabeth- 
town 11, LVC 6), offense was 
in short supply. The Dutchmen 
fired 13 shots in the game but 
managed to place just four on 
goal while the Blue Jays took 
nine shots and put the same 
number on target. 

Senior Chris Hall launched 



a game-high six shots for LVC, 
including one that would have 
counted for three points in foot- 
ball as he fired the ball through a 
field goal post on the next field. 

Elizabethtown picked up two 
yellow cards and freshman Con- 
nor McDonald also received a 
yellow for the Dutchmen. 

The men host conference op- 
ponent Alvernia University on 
Saturday at 3pm.
